Brandon Lawrence runs alongside Team RWB in Des Moines

Local News

There are just a few days left until the IMT Des Moines Marathon, and as we gear up for race day- there’s a special group of athletes taking over the metro.

It’s a group of runners called Team RWB and they’re carrying the U.S. flag across the nation on foot.

Local 5’s Brandon Lawrence joined them Wednesday morning as they left Des Moines and headed west, where they’ll finish the day in Anita, Iowa.
